It's OK to Get Short with Us and "El Gordito"

Fringe fanatics love our axle bar with gusto, so they asked us to give them the short end of the stick. Now our favorite couple in the Fringe Family have delivered a new addition to the "Gordo Family." We're happy to introduce to you our height restricted axle bar, El Gordito.

The little boy of El Gordazo and La Gordita, he completes the Gordo family. Like his dad, he probably sneaks an extra taco or two when no one is looking. But who are we to complain? He's just as beefy and rugged as the rest of the family.

If you're into strongman or if you just want to blast your forearms and improve grip strength, you're going to be crushing hard on this bar in no time.

  • Improve grip strength with 2in diameter shaft, great for strongman workouts.
  • Collars are 2in diameter so 2in Olympic Barbell collars fit perfectly.
  • Powder-coated matte black finish.

Life is Short, Live it to the Strongest

We took our popular regulation axle bar and cut it down to size. The short version we created, looks like a section of black iron, outdoor drainage pipe the Hulk ripped off the wall for you. Your strongman goals won't be pipe dreams with the shorty though. Don't hesitate to employ the shorty for functional fitness, overhead presses, Zydrunas presses or the dreaded continental clean. After a short stint of axle training in your garage, you'll be slaying job interviews, business meetings, dates and negotiations in no time.

There are a few things to note for the Short Axle Barbell.

  • This is a true strongman axle / fat bar - there is no knurling on the bar.
  • The 2" diameter includes the shaft of the bar, explaining the "fat bar" nickname.
  • This is one, solid bar. The collars do not rotate.
